"Stephen, Gizella on the ancient castle, behind them a valley bridge: a rainbow of stones. From the wind of the Bakony - you wouldn't dare to dream - golden bells embroider, a mass of music. Here the hill to the valley, valley to hill, little streets run into the stone wilderness. Spacious squares above alleys, climbing floors to ground level. Whispering in the locska Seden." - Géza Kemény: Veszprém Anzyksz.
Veszprém is a picturesque and historical town with an undulating terrain, situated at the centre of the Western Hungarian (Transdanubian) region, where the Bakony Hills meet the Lake Balaton area. The friendly and cosy atmosphere of this thousand-year-old small town is well reflected by its cultural life.
